The Tigers advanced to the ALCS, where they will play the Athletics.

(From E.S.P.N)

DETROIT (AP) -- As a reborn baseball town erupted in splashes of orange and blue around them, the Detroit Tigers danced in the infield, kicking up dirt like kids on a sandlot.

They grabbed Jim Leyland, hoisted him on their shoulders and carried him off the field as 43,000 delirious fans screamed as one. The manager's ride was a short one, but the party was just getting started.

Game 4 Breakdown

Unsung Hero
Magglio Ordonez. He got the Tigers' offense rolling and scored the first three times he came to the plate. He homered in the second, reached on an error in the third and singled in the fifth. He finished 2-for-4 with two RBI.

The Yankees' offense. After being touted as one of the greatest lineups of all time, they weren't even good. Only four players managed six hits, and the team batted .172 (11-for-64) with just four extra-base knocks and three runs in two games in Detroit  exiting the playoffs with a whimper.

Turning Point
The bottom of the second inning. Ordonez led off with a solo home run, and three batters later, Craig Monroe hit a two-run shot to give the Tigers a 3-0 lead. They never looked back after that.

On Deck
The Tigers advance to the American League Championship Series for the first time since 1987, when they lost to the eventual World Series champion Twins in five games. Game 1 of the ALC is Tuesday in Oakland. Barry Zito will start for the A's. Detroit will counter with either Nate Robertson or Justin Verlander.

The Tigers are still on the prowl. The mighty New York Yankees struck out.

Three years after losing 119 games, they moved back among baseball's biggest cats with an 8-3 victory Saturday in Game 4 over the Yankees, whose $200 million payroll couldn't help them against Detroit's pitching.

"This is the best of the best, to beat the best team in baseball," said Craig Monroe, who hit a two-run homer. "This is baseball for us, right here in Detroit."

Once a punchline, the Tigers punched out the big, bad Yankees.

"You kind of get tired of giving the other team credit," third baseman Alex Rodriguez said after another terrible October. "At some point you've got to look in the mirror and say, 'I sucked."

Jeremy Bonderman was perfect for five innings and sublime until the ninth as the Tigers moved into the AL championship series against Oakland by eliminating A-Rod, Derek Jeter and the other high-priced, high-profile Yankees.

Given little chance before the series started or when they were down 0-1, Detroit won three straight to stun the AL East champions, who could be facing a colder New York baseball winter than normal.

It all happened faster than Leyland, the Tigers' no-nonsense skipper, or anyone could have ever imagined. The feisty 61-year-old ended a six-year retirement and took over a team that had averaged 100 losses since 2001 and one he figured would fight with Kansas City to stay out of last place in the AL Central.

Instead, Leyland has taken the Tigers near the top.

"I didn't think we'd be here this year," he said. "All we wanted to do was look at our pieces and parts we had and see if we needed to change any. I thought it would be a year or so before we got into a situation like this. This came a little bit quicker than I expected."

During spring training in Florida, Leyland made his players study the Yankees. He wanted them to emulate their Bronx-born bravado, right down to the way they run onto the field.

"I said, 'That's the level we want to get to, and we've got to get that quiet swagger and confidence that the Yankees got," he said. "I used them as an example. It's kind of ironic that we got to play them, and fortunately beat them."

The Tigers' chances seemed slim just a few days ago when they were swept at home on the final weekend of the regular season by the last-place Royals, who denied them a division title. Detroit had to settle for a wild-card berth and a first-round matchup with the Yankees.

It seemed lopsided. It sure was. The Yankees didn't have a chance.

These man-eating Tigers simply devoured New York, outplaying the Yanks in every phase to advance to their first AL championship series since 1987. On Tuesday, the Tigers will play at Oakland in Game 1 of the AL championship series, the first postseason meeting between the clubs since 1972.

"Nobody gave us a shot in this series," Bonderman said. "That motivated us."

The Yankees never found any spark, and for the second straight year the star-studded squad is going home after a first-round exit.

"I'm stunned," New York general manager Brian Cashman said. "This team fooled me to some degree. Detroit was on top of their game and we weren't, and that combination was lethal for us. I'm disappointed where we're at now."

Losing stung and now the Yankees will have to face owner George Steinbrenner's wrath. He may have big changes in store for his underachieving ballclub, which hasn't won a World Series since 2000.

One of the Yankees' offseason moves could be trading Rodriguez, who capped another forgettable October by going 1-for-14 (.071) and going without an RBI for the second straight postseason.

"I have no one to blame but myself," he said. "I know I certainly have to do well for this team to win."

Bonderman allowed just five singles, walking off to a thunderous ovation with an 8-1 lead.

After the final out, the Tigers mobbed each other before turning their affection to Leyland, who began his baseball career in 1963 as a catcher in Detroit's system.

"That was awesome," third baseman Brandon Inge said. "That's so deserving. I don't know how many people have been carried off the field on their shoulders, but I tell you what, if there were a select few that deserve it, he is definitely one of them."

Moments later, the Tigers emerged from their clubhouse armed with champagne bottles and they uncorked them during a victory lap around Comerica Park, slapping hands and spraying fans who danced to Kiss' "Rock and Roll All Night."

"These fans have been here for some of the worst things," Monroe said. "We wanted them to be able to have a party tonight."

Magglio Ordonez and Monroe each homered off Jaret Wright as the Tigers built an 8-0 after six innings and coasted through the final three.

Blanked in Game 3 by Kenny Rogers, the Yankees and their reputed Murderer's Row didn't score off Bonderman until the seventh, snapping a scoreless streak of a season-high 20 2-3 innings. This from a team which scored 930 runs during the regular season but managed just 14 in the series, getting drubbed 14-3 in the final two games.

"You've got to play," Jeter said. "You don't win games on paper. You've got to come out here and perform. And they pretty much overmatched us in this series."

Feeding off a frenzied crowd, Bonderman retired the first 15 Yankees in order before Robinson Cano dribbled a single through the middle for New York's first hit. Bonderman, though, wasn't about to let a big lead slip away like he did last Sunday when the Royals overcame a 6-0 deficit to beat the Tigers, a loss that cost Detroit an AL Central title and home-field advantage in Round 1.

As it turns out, the Tigers and their $80-plus million payroll didn't need any such luxuries.

"I just wanted to go out and attack them," Bonderman said. "I just wanted to leave everything I had on the field, and I think I did. This is the greatest thrill in the world. You can't ask for anything better.

Vols shred vaunted Georgia D for 51 points in comeback win

It was over when... Arian Foster rushed for two touchdowns in the
game's final eight minutes. He increased the Vols' lead from five to 19
and put a close game out of reach.
Gameball goes to... Foster and
Erik Ainge. Foster finished the day with three TDs and 55 rushing

Stat of the game... 4: Turnovers tell the story; Georgia lost
possession four times, the Vols did not. The Dawgs controlled the ball
for the first half, but UT's defenders wore down Georgia's QBs.

Ga. (AP) -- Erik Ainge and Tennessee shredded the nation's stingiest
defense, becoming just the second team to put up 50 points on Georgia
between the hedges.

Ainge threw for two touchdowns and ran for
another to lead the No. 13 Volunteers to a wild 51-33 victory Saturday
night that defied the norm in the defensive-minded Southeastern
Conference, which had three Top 10 teams lose on the day.

Foster scored three times for Tennessee (5-1, 1-1 SEC), all on 1-yard
runs. The Vols piled up 383 yards and 27 first downs, going a perfect
6-for-6 scoring TDs each time they got inside Georgia's 20.

10th-ranked Bulldogs (5-1, 2-1 SEC) went down to the same fate as No. 2
Auburn, knocked off by Arkansas 27-10, and No. 9 LSU, which lost 23-10
to fifth-ranked Florida. The Bulldogs hardly looked like a team that
was allowing a nation's-best 6.8 points per game -- only 34 all season.

scored more points than that in the second half, finishing with the
second-most ever by a visiting team at Sanford Stadium. Only Florida,
which won 52-17 in 1995 during the height of Steve Spurrier's Fun-n-Gun
offense, scored more points on the Bulldogs in Athens.

The Vols
couldn't afford another conference loss after falling to Florida in
their SEC opener three weeks ago. They sure looked in trouble when
Georgia raced to a 24-7 lead with less than five minutes to go in the
first half.

But Ainge put Tennessee ahead to stay in the opening
minute of the fourth quarter, hooking up with Robert Meachem on a
15-yard touchdown pass that made it 31-27. After Georgia was stuffed on
its next possession, freshman Antonio Wardlow blocked Gordon
Ely-Kelso's punt and fell on the ball in the corner of the end zone for
another TD.

The crowd of more than 92,000 was still recovering
from that blow when Thomas Brown found a seam up the middle and broke
off a 99-yard return for a touchdown -- Georgia's second return for a
TD in the game.

Mikey Henderson had an 86-yard punt return early in the second quarter, his second touchdown on a punt return this season.

wasn't nearly enough to save Georgia. Foster scored on a 1-yard run
with 8:15 remaining and did it again with 2:54 left to make it half a

Ainge finished 25-of-38 for 268 yards. Meachem had seven receptions for 98 yards, while Bret Smith also caught seven for 94.

Tereshinski started at quarterback for Georgia, his first appearance
since going down with a severely sprained ankle in the season opener.

Tereshinski gave a bit of life to an offense that struggled in his
absence with freshmen Matthew Stafford and Joe Cox flip-flopping the
quarterback duties, it wasn't nearly enough to overcome the Tennessee

Tennessee carried that momentum into the third quarter.

I'm Replying to a challange/quiz that was posted on p/box but i cant find it so here's my reply

David was prophesying about God telling Jesus to sit
at his right hand until God had fully judged Jesus' enemies.  He is saying
that David said this before he had died.  Telling the crowd it was a
prophecy.  God and Jesus is both God.

-Thanks P.K. for helping me out
